Barrel aged training started early at the Kompaan headquarters in 2020. A yet unknown entity was threatening the world as we knew it. While most people remained stoic and sceptic about what was going to happen, our head brewers at Kompaan had a sense that it was going to be a tough couple of months, so they started their barrel-ageing training extra early.
And that was not for nothing, as the world as we had always known it changed completely. While a worldwide pandemic raged across the globe, a lot of people got scared, anxious or went completely mad. But not our fearless brewers. Steadfast we started working on the Kompaan Foreign Legion, which underwent their hardest training ever. Enriched with more flavour, more strength and new techniques they’re ready to cut some edge and add some thunder!
